Basic Wheat Bran Muffin Recipe

Wheat bran muffins… I’m sure we can all agree that there’s nothing quite like a sweet, moving experience. Hence, if all of the movies in the world were made for me, they would all have happy endings. As a matter of fact, I’m sure we could all use more happy endings in our daily life. And, with that, I present thee with a basic bran muffin recipe. A romantic comedy, if you will, because everything comes out alright in the end.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Wheat Bran Muffins Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups wheat bran
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
  • 1  cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 1/2 cup buttermilk

Mix just until well combined. Overmixing will make muffins rubbery. Line muffin tins with cupcake or muffin liners. Use just a little more than an ice cream scoop full to place into each liner. Bake for maybe 20 minutes or rather until a fork poked into the middle of one comes out clean. Makes 12 muffins (or maybe 6 large ones).

Sweet. Moving. If you also enjoy a little twist in your romantic comedies, just add a few fresh blueberries coated lightly in white flour before gently stirring into your batter and the good news is, you can, consequently,  still enjoy the same happy ending.
